Big City

My first time in New York. A business trip. Did a little site seeing. It was a great opportunity for this packaging designer to see some great inspirations. Toured the Museum of Modern Art, 5th Ave window "shopping", the Empire State Building, a couple of big design firms, the Paramount Hotel, Times Square, Moss, Karim Rashid, FAO Schwartz, the Apple store, St. Peters Cathedral. Lots of walking, more than I am used to anyway. I rode a subway, and hailed a cab, all by myself.

Ice Storm

We got a pretty serious ice storm last week. Cable was out for several days, therefore Internet service was as well, so I couldn't post, or even surf. I've been trying to catch up on my reading of blogs. Still...it could have been a lot worse. We didn't lose power, but last Tuesday, I was outside letting my dog relieve himself at about 3:00 am, and it was dead calm and only 16 degrees F. I could hear a generator running down the road a little ways. Some of my neighbors were without power for three days. That would have really sucked, No power, a new baby, and cold enough to freeze the......well you know what I mean.

Here's Looking at You, Kid

Sorry that I have not posted very much lately. The water is much too cold to kayak, frozen in places. My daughter is now taking up much of my free time.
